*UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE DONATED AS PART OF THE ING ESTATE (P19950073023). SHE EXTRACTED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON THE ING FAMILY FROM PERMANENT FILE P19950073001, WHICH CONTAINS A TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW COLLECTIONS TECH KEVIN MACLEAN CONDUCTED WITH HAROLD ING JR., SON OF HAROLD AND MYRA, IN HIS ROOM AT THE LETHBRIDGE HOTEL IN SEPTEMBER 2005. MYRA WAS BORN IN GOLDEN B.C. TO SHIN-BOW AND CHOW TING RAH; HER FATHER ORGINALLY EMIGRATED TO CANADA TO WORK ON CANADIAN RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION AND LATER BECAME A RESTAURANTEUR, WHERE MYRA DEVELOPED HER ENGLISH SKILLS AS A WAITRESS. "IN 1906 MY DAD [HAROLD ING SR.] LEFT HONG KONG FOR VANCOUVER, HE COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH... HE'S GOT TO BE A WAITER, A BUSBOY... AND HE LEARNED ALL THE WAY UP, IN THE MEANTIME PICKING UP ENGLISH... WENT TO WINNIPEG. THIS IS BEFORE ME. BY THEN HE KNEW THE WHOLE SYSTEM OF RESTAURANTING." MYRA AND HAROLD SR. MARRIED AND ADOPTED HAROLD JR. WHEN HE WAS BORN INTO A POOR FAMILY OF ELEVEN IN 1944, IN VANCOUVER. "ME AND MY TWIN SISTER WERE SOLD BECAUSE THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY. SO DAD, MY MOM PICKED ME AND DAD SAID YES THAT'S GOOD... I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY SISTER IS... THERE'S NO WAY OF FINDING OUT." THE ING FAMILY SETTLED IN LETHBRIDGE IN THE LATE 1940S, AND HAROLD SR. OWNS AND OPERATES THE NEW MOON CAFE AND TWO GROCERIES, WHICH ARE RUN BY THE FAMILY AND NEW CHINESE IMMIGRANTS THAT HAROLD SR. SPONSORED. "AT APPROXIMATELY FIVE YEARS OLD [MY FATHER] INTRODUCED ME TO THE NEW MOON CAFE, AND I WAS A BUSBOY AT THE AGE OF FIVE... IN 1951 HE SHOWED ME MY FIRST HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL... BECAUSE HE WAS THE OWNER... HE'D WAKE UP AT FIVE IN THE MORNING TO GO TO THE CAFE, OFF AND ON TO THE GROCERY STORE AND MIGHT BE DONE AT EIGHT AT NIGHT, SUPPER AND IMMEDIATELY TO CHINATOWN [FOR] GAMBLING, PUTTING DOWN MAH JONG." HAROLD JR. ATTENDED WESTMINISTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DURING THE DAY, AND CHINESE SCHOOL AT THE CHINESE NATIONAL LEAGUE IN THE EVENINGS - HIS FATHER WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE, AND THE ORGANIZATION RAN THE SCHOOL, CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS, FILM SCREENINGS, AND BANQUETS, FUNDED BY MEMBERSHIP FEES. HAROLD'S YOUNGER BROTHER, CALVIN, "GOT SENT TO A BOARDING SCHOOL SOMEWHERE. HE WAS GIFTED, BUT HE HAD A BYPASS SURGERY, HE HAD SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIS HEART. HE COULDN'T HANDLE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SO THEY SENT HIM TO B.C." AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND A BRIEF STINT IN CALGARY, HAROLD JR. RAN ING'S GROCERY FOR HIS FATHER, AND IN THE LATE 1960S AND EARLY 70S ALSO WORKED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND A SALESMAN AT SEARS. BOTH HAROLD SR. AND MYRA ING PASSED AWAY IN THE 1990S, AND THE OBJECTS ENCOMPASSING DONATION P19950073001-231 WERE COLLECTED FROM THE FAMILY HOME.

*UPDATE* IN 2012 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT DAVID SMITH CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS. HE WAS UNABLE TO RETRIEVE CONTACT INFORMATION FOR ORIGINAL DONOR. NO UNIQUE MARKINGS TO HELP IDENTIFY ORIGINAL OWNER. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING A PAINTING BY BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER, WHOSE CARTOONS ARE REPRODUCED ON THIS TEAPOT. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY ON THE ARTIST, BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER, WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM SPARTACUS EDUCATIONAL ONLINE: BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER WAS BORN IN MURREE IN THE PUNJAB PROVINCE OF PAKISTAN ON JULY 9, 1888. HIS FATHER, THOMAS BAIRNSFATHER, WAS A LIEUTENANT IN THE BENGAL INFANTRY. HE ATTENDED SCHOOL IN INDIA AND STRATFORD-UPON-AVON. BAIRNSFATHER INITIALLY JOINED THE BRITISH ARMY WHEN HE CAME OF AGE, BUT FOUND ARMY LIFE BORING AND ENROLLED AT THE HASSALL SCHOOL OF ART. AFTER GRADUATING HE WORKED IN ADVERTISING, PRODUCING POSTERS FOR PRODUCTS INCLUDING LIPTON TEA, PLAYER'S TOBACCO, BEECHAMS AND FLOWERS BEER. AT THE ONSET OF WWI BAIRNSFATHER REJOINED THE ROYAL WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT AND WAS PROMOTED TO LIEUTENANT. HE WAS PUT IN CHARGE OR A MAXIM MACHINE GUN SECTION, AND SAW ACTION ON THE WESTERN FRONT. BAIRNSFATHER WAS SO SHOCKED BY TRENCH LIFE HE REFUSED TO TAKE LEAVE, FEARING THAT ONCE HE LEFT, IT WOULD BE TOO DIFFICULT TO RETURN. DURING THE CHRISTMAS OF 1914, HE WAS NEARLY COURT-MARTIALED AFTER JOINING GERMAN SOLDIERS IN WHAT LATER BECAME KNOWN AS THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE. WHILE ON THE WESTERN FRONT, BAIRNSFATHER DREW PICTURES OF TRENCH LIFE THAT WERE PUBLISHED IN THE BYSTANDER MAGAZINE. IN 1915, DURING THE SECOND BATTLE OF YPRES, HE WAS EXPOSED TO CHLORINE GAS AND WOUNDED BY A SHELL EXPLOSION. DURING HIS CONVALESCENCE AT LONDON GENERAL HOSPITAL, BAIRNSFATHER PRODUCED WEEKLY DRAWINGS FOR THE BYSTANDER, WHICH WERE LATER INCLUDED IN HIS BOOK SERIES CALLED 'FRAGMENTS FROM FRANCE'. AFTER REGAINING HIS HEALTH, CAPTAIN BAIRNSFATHER WAS SENT TO TRAIN NEW RECRUITS ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT. DURING THIS PERIOD, HE CREATED HIS SIGNATURE CARTOON CHARACTER, OLD BILL. HIS CARTOONS WERE EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH SOLDIERS IN THE TRENCHES, AND OLD BILL APPEARED IN MANY FORMS, INCLUDING PLAYS, MUSICALS, FEATURE FILMS, COMIC STRIPS, AND ON POTTERY, PLAYING CARDS, POSTCARDS AND OTHER MERCHANDISE. AFTER THE WAR, BAIRNSFATHER TOURED ON THE SUCCESS OF OLD BILL, VISITING VETERAN'S LEGIONS ACROSS NORTH AMERICA. DURING WWII HE WAS APPOINTED AS AN OFFICIAL CARTOONIST TO THE AMERICAN FORCES IN EUROPE. BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER DIED OF COMPLICATIONS RESULTING FROM CANCER TREATMENTS ON SEPTEMBER 29, 1959. SEE PERMANENT FILE P20000047006 FOR HARDCOPY OF BAIRNSFATHER'S BIOGRAPHY AND EXCERPTS FROM HIS BOOK 'BULLETS AND BILLETS' (1916) AND HIS RECOLLECTIONS ON THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE AND THE BATTLE AT YPRES.

ED NATURALLY" *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROY CLINIC.

HE WAS STATIONED IN A BRITISH MILITARY HOSPITAL IN KENT AS A PATHOLOGIST AND EARNED THE RANK OF CAPTAIN. UPON WAR'S END DR. ROY RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE AND WORKED WITH THE CAMPBELL GROUP UNTIL 1936, WHEN HE PARTNERED WITH DR. VALERIAN SWANCESKY (AND LATER, WITH DR. STEPHEN SCHMALTZ) TO CREATE THE ROY CLINIC GROUP. THE CLINIC WAS HOUSED ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE SHERLOCK BLOCK. DR. ROY WAS ACCREDITED AS A SURGEON BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA IN 1945, AND HE PRACTICED AT THE CLINIC UNTIL HIS RETIREMENT IN 1961. DR. ROY'S SON, DR. DOUGLAS GAETEN ROY ALSO JOINED THE PRACTICE IN 1945. DR. LOUIS A. ROY DIED IN 1964, BUT THE PRACTICE CONTINUED WITH ADDITIONS INCLUDING DR. DONALD ARTHUR RICE AND DR. JAMES ALFRED MCNALLY. THE CLINIC MOVED TO 2ND AVENUE SOUTH IN 1959, AND OPERATED THERE UNDER THE ROY NAME UNTIL BECOMING THE PARK MEDICAL GROUP IN THE LATE 1980S. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARCOPIES OF DR. LOUIS A.

MADE IN ENGLAND FOR LETHBRIDGE BREWERY, FOUNDED IN 1901 BY FRITZ SICK. ALSO CALLED SYPHON BOTTLES, THESE CONTAINERS WERE USED IN HOMES, HOTELS, BARS, AND CORNER SODA FOUNTAINS TO SPRITZ CARBONATED WATER. THE UNIQUE SYPHON TOP ALLOWED A PORTION OF THE BOTTLE’S CONTENTS TO BE DISPENSED WHILE PRESERVING THE REST FOR ANOTHER TIME. IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE 20TH CENTURY THIS TYPE OF BOTTLE WAS ALSO PROMOTED AS BEING A SUITABLE SUBSTITUTE FOR A FIRE EXTINGUISHER, AND SOME USED THE SELTZER AS A CURE FOR HEARTBURN (ULTIMATELY THE ORIGIN OF ALKA-SELTZER). SELTZER WAS EXTREMELY POPULAR IN THE 1920S AND 30S, BUT HAD ALMOST DISAPPEARED BY THE 1940S. BREWERY CLOSED BY OWNER, MOLSONS IN 1990 & SUBSEQUENTLY DEMOLISHED.DONOR A FORMER VOLUNTEER AT THE MUSEUM IS DECEASED. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING FOUR PAINTINGS CREATED BY THE DONOR, CHRISTIAN GIBSON. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION ON GIBSON WAS EXCERPTED FROM HIS LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY: CHRISTIAN GIBSON WAS BORN IN BELFAST, IRELAND IN 1887 AND EDUCATED IN LONDON, ENGLAND BEFORE ARRIVING IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1908. HE WORKED FOR THE CITY AS ZOO KEEPER AT THE EXHIBITION GROUNDS AND FOR THE ALBERTA RAILROAD AND IRRIGATION COMPANY BEFORE BEGINNING HIS 35 YEAR CAREER WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF TRADE AND COMMERCE IN 1913. GIBSON SERVED WITH THE 25TH BATTERY CANADIAN FIELD ARTILLERY FROM 1908 TO 1914 AND FROM 1914 TO 1919 HE SERVED IN ENGLAND IN FRANCE WITH THE 20TH BATTERY CFA. HE WAS ALSO VERY ACTIVE IN THE COMMUNITY AS A MEMBER OF THE KIWANIS CLUB, ALLIED ARTS COUNCIL, LETHBRIDGE AND DISTRICT HISTORICAL SOCIETY, PLAYGOERS OF LETHBRIDGE, ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION, PEMMICAN CLUB, MASONIC LODGE, AND THE GALT HOSPITAL BOARD. HE AND HIS WIFE LINDA WERE HEAVILY INFLUENTIAL IN THE RED CROSS SOCIETY’S LETHRBIDGE CHAPTER, AND HAD TWO CHILDREN, FRED AND DORIS. CHRISTIAN GIBSON PASSED AWAY ON MARCH 26, 1971. IN 2010 HIS DAUGHTER, DORIS BALCOVSKE, PARTICIPATED IN THE GALT MUSEUM’S FIRST ‘TREASURES & CURIOSITIES’ EXHIBIT BY SELECTING ONE OF HER FATHER’S PAINTINGS TO BE DISPLAYED. SHE SUBMITTED THE FOLLOWING NARRATIVE ABOUT GIBSON’S ASSOCIATION WITH THE GALT AND HIS PAINTING PRACTICE: “MY FATHER… WAS ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE GALT MUSEUM AND HELPED COLLECT MANY OF THE ARTIFACTS. MY FATHER WAS A SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST WITH OILS, WATER COLORS, AND ALSO PEN AND INK… THE FAMILY OWNS MOST OF HIS PAINTINGS.” SEE PERMANENT FILE P19694807000 FOR HARDCOPY OF GIBSON’S OBITUARY.
